American Oral History Project: LBJ's Great Society & Richard Nixon's War

Production of two radio documentaries and twelve podcasts exploring the Johnson and Nixon presidencies from 1963 to mid-1975.

PRI requests NEH support for the production of a two-part audio documentary project exploring the transformative changes—political, social, and economic—that swept the US during the successive presidencies of Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon. LBJ’s Great Society and Richard Nixon’s Vietnam will join LBJ’s War, PRI’s previous NEH-funded audio project, within the larger tent of the American Oral History Project, an ambitious new effort to use the unique narrative power of oral history to provide new perspectives on the central figures and seminal events of the 1960s and 70s. Each of the new topics will be explored through a six-episode podcast series constructed from archival material such as interviews, White House recordings and phone calls, as well as narration and commentary from a distinguished historian. PRI will also create a landing page within its web site,, where visitors can access audio segments on demand along with additional visual and text materials.
